These Caramel Apple Fireball Shots Just Climbed To The Top Of My Christmas List

Caramel-Apple-Fireball-Shots-OBI

In the spirit of the holiday, Oh Bite It! created a caramel apple recipe to get us ready for some good old-fashioned holiday drinking. These Caramel Apple Fireball Shots definitely have us pumped to start our vacation.

What you’ll need are two large apples, about 40 small pieces of caramel, a 1/4 cup of (optional) liquid pectin and a cup of Fireball Whiskey.

Throw the caramel and Fireball into a double boiler and let it all melt completely. Then, add the liquid pectin to give the mixture a firmness.

Cut the apples in half and core them. Leave enough so that the halves are sturdy enough to hold the caramel mixture. Pour the melted caramel into the carved out holes in the apple halves. Fill it to the edges, but make sure it doesn’t overflow.

Pop the apples in the fridge for two hours so that the caramel hardens. Once they’re ready, you can slice them up and serve.
